Bush Makes the World Safer!

Then how do we explain the 30 percent increase in terrorist attacks in 2006?

No wait, the Bushies create their own reality, I forgot, where there is no evidence for evolution, SUVs are good for the environment, tax cuts boost revenue, and Bush keeps everybody safe...

MY FELLOW AMERICANS:

OUR LONG NATIONAL NIGHTMARE WILL BE OVER IN 20 MONTHS, 2 WEEKS, 6 DAYS, 9 HOURS, 14 MINUTES, 12 SECONDS AND 832 NANOSECONDS.

Historically, tax cuts have increased revenue.

What was total tax revenue this go round?

Franklin,

Go look up the difference between changes in the tax base and changes in the tax rate. Let me make it easier for you: nominal revenue can still rise, but still fall as a percent of GDP.

Franklin Jennings said...

Oh no, let me make it easy for you...

A cut in rate, by definition, means that the percent of GDP will drop. One need not look anything up. This only requires the cognitive energy necessary to toast a slice of bread.

Lightly.

But you yourself have all but admitted that tax revenue increased, contrary to your initial assertion.

Morning's Minion said...

"A cut in rate, by definition, means that the percent of GDP will drop." In other words, tax cuts (isolating from base growth) reduce revenue. Tell that to your Republican friends.

Franklin Jennings said...

And historically, base growth always follows tax cuts at the national level.

Do you really think someone who advocates gutting the corporate economy we have now has any republican friends? Ok, I have one, but we don't discuss economics or politics. We have a common interest in history, so we stay busy enough arguing there.

But way to go demonstrating that myopic dualism that is common among Americans. "You've got to be one or the other, you can't just refuse to take part!!! Which is it, Left or Right?"

Sorry, but where both halves agree, they both are almost always wrong. And where they disagree, again, they both are almost always wrong.

Again with the unfounded and unsupported statements.
